2014 Trek 7.5 FX

Fast and comfortable, you get the best of both worlds with Trek's 7.5 FX! Its hydroformed aluminum frame provides an efficient, comfortable ride, while the Bontrager carbon fork is super light and damps road vibration for velvety smoothness. The wonderful ride continues with Bontrager's light wheels and flat-resistant Race Hardcase tires, which are equally at home on roads, paths, and trails. Plus, the 18-speed, wide-ranging drivetrain gives you the right gears for any hill at any pace, and the linear-pull brakes offer complete control.

Comments:

I use this bike for fitness and casual rides. I've been on rides of a few miles to 25 miles (so far) for pace and just cruising. I either go on stand-alone rides or after other workouts. It is awesome! It's comfortable and quick. Very lightweight and durable. I've put a LOT of miles on it since April and haven't had any issues. The only issue I might be able to gripe about is the way that it shifts. It isn't the smoothest shifting between gears. I took it for it's break-in tune-up and it still does it, so I think it might just be something I have to get used to. I used to ride a Mongoose mountain bike for long rides on the road and paths, so this is a whole different animal. Not really a major issue. Overall, I love the bike and would recommend it to anyone riding for fitness & recreation!

    I use the bike to ride in the city and on paved and unpaved trails. It is quick and maneuverable in the city and sure footed on trails.

    Comments:

    Purchased new, but from day 1 there is an annoying drivetrain vibration felt in the pedals during pedaling. Taking it back to my local bike shop for troubleshooting. Noticed right away upon further investigation that there is a slight visible wobble on one of the higher gears of my rear cassette. Will have them check out the Bottom Bracket also. Other than that, what a cool looking bike! My dealer is great too. IMO, this bike should be built with Shimano Deore XT M-780 as the standard drivetrain; not mixed up with SORA, R-440, and basic bottom of the barrel DEORE and SRAM scraps. Plan to upgrade the drivetrain right away to a better group, ex: Shimano XT or XTR or a higher end SRAM equivalent. I am going with an XT component upgrade package.

    Comments:

    I purchased this bike 12 months ago and have approximately 1,900 miles on it to date. I am 95% a commuter and 5% recreational rider. I ride in a mix of urban and rural environments in SW Washington State, with plenty of rainy day rides. I researched similar Raleigh and Specialized bikes prior to buying the Trek 7.5, with disc brakes. First the good news....Overall, I am very satisfied. The bike is comfortable, agile and light. I am exceptionally pleased with the disc brakes. They have worked flawlessly and prevented urban collisions on at least three or four occasions. These brakes rock, wet or dry. The Shimano Deore components are a disappointment. I consistently cant get a shift right in the middle of the gearing, which is exceptionally frustrating in traffic. After the sixth adjustment I gave up on the hope that the root cause was cable stretch and am resigned to the fact that the components just aren't good quality. For the occasional rider, this would likely never be an issue. For the person who commutes 100 miles a week, this is a source of aggravation. I would give this bike a perfect score if the shifting and gearing worked consistently. Last note....The OEM tires were advertised as "reinforced" tires. Maybe so but I endured six flats last year. (changing a rear flat with the disc brakes on the road takes some practice!)I have replaced the OEM tires with Continental Gator Skins in hopes of better luck this year.
